    One of the best SD rounds in .223/5.56, IMO. The FPD seems harder to find but I like the nickel cases. The ultimate is the TAP T2 bullet in 5.56 but that's almost impossible to find.

    I don't think I would stash 500 rounds of this stuff (too expensive) but certainly having 5 or 6 boxes would be good. You need at least a few boxes just to function check it.

    If you have the $$$ to spare the Silver State Armory (SSA) 70gr Barnes TSX 5.56mm NATO pressure load is supposedly the shiznit in-caliber. It ain't cheap but I have 200rds of it "on ice" for a rainy day.

    The Mk318 is also worth looking into for high-end, quality 5.56mm fodder, albeit not nearly as expensive as the SSA stuff.
